  RU-H2R GeneratorOsmic Blue R-Axis IIc
The IMB X-Ray Crystallography Facility features three separate instrument set-ups for x-ray diffraction data acquisition. The Rigaku Osmic Image Plate (ROIP) set-up consists of a rotating anode generator, multi-layer optics and an automated image plate detector. The x-ray source is a 12 kW Rigaku RU-H2R rotating anode generator (running at 44 kv and 94 mA) with a copper anode and a 0.3 x 3.0 mm2 x-ray filament (cathode). An Osmic Blue confocal mirror system purged in helium gas images the x-ray filament at 6° angle creating a foreshortned (reduced 1/10 on one dimension) 0.3 x 0.3 mm2 point image that is collimated and focussed at the detector. The image plate has an active area of 190 x 190 mm 2 with a 0.102 x 0.105 mm resolution in the fast and slow directions, respectively. The image has two (2) byte depth thus generating a grey scale image of ~7 MB in size and can be read automatically in eight (8) minutes.
